For a while, there was a separate transmission-qt4 SlackBuild for
14.2, which was an older version of transmission that worked with
qt4. I removed it when we were getting ready for the 15.0 repo, and
enabled the qt5 UI in the regular transmission SlackBuild.

Later I added qt4 to SBo, but didn't re-add transmission-qt4 because I
don't see any use for it.

David Chmelik, if you want there to be a transmission-qt4 build again,
you could submit one. I'm not interested in maintaining it, but you
can if you like. You can even use the old transmission-qt4 from the
14.2 repo as a starting point: it shouldn't need much modification
(probably change "qmake" to "qmake-qt4", and add REQUIRES="qt4" and
your name/email to the .info file). Make sure it doesn't conflict with
the regular transmission package (don't use transmission-qt for the
executable filename, .desktop file, etc).
